4) Graham cracker bandaids - Cut up some graham crackers, add some white frosting for gauze, and finished with a smear of red gel icing blood. Simple, fun... and a little gross!
5) Tic Tac Toe game - Click here to download this adorable Halloween "tic tac toe" board for free. You can use candy, buttons or googly eyes for the markers.
6) Treat bags with special tags - Make traditional treat bags extra special by adding a customized tag. Click here to find out how I transformed pictures of my boys to make these tags.
7) Googly eye glasses - These googly eye glasses are fantastic alternatives to candy. You can find the full "how to" and a free downloadable bag topper here. (These toppers would work with "eyeball" candies or bouncy balls too.)
8) Cookies with candy corn or candy eyeballs - For a simple treat, make your favorite cookie recipe and add a piece of candy corn or a candy eyeball to the top. It doesn't get any easier than this! You can find the recipe for our favorite Halloween cookie here.
9) Photos with treats - For a candy free treat, try pairing pictures with little toys or pencils. You can find the full tutorial here.
10) Mazes - This little "maze" game is inexpensive and guaranteed to be a hit with little ones. You can download the "I think you are an a'MAZE'ing friend" free printable gift tag here.
11) Ghost Pops - Ghosts are always fun for Halloween, and we have two favorite ghoulish treats. To learn how to make our Oreo Ghost Pops, click here. To make the sucker ghosts: cover a sucker with a piece of tissue paper, secure with an elastic, and add a face with googly eyes and a marker.
12) Cupcakes with rings - To make these simple cupcakes, just bake mini cupcakes and insert a plastic ring (after washing, of course).
13) Wormy cupcakes - These are an annual favorite around here. Bake cupcakes, frost with chocolate icing, dip in dirt (Oreo cookie crumbs), and insert some gummy worms.
14) Cookie pops - To make super-easy cookie pops, just add some sticks to "ready to bake" cookies. Isn't everything more fun on a stick?
